Preventative Care Healthcare Q & A

What is preventive care?

Imagine being able to anticipate a problem and head it off at the pass, saving yourself an incredible amount of pain and suffering down the road. That’s exactly what preventive care is designed to do. While there’s no crystal ball when it comes to your future health, there are some rules of thumb that will put you in good stead.

This is why the team at Rochester Primary Care emphasizes preventive care. The CDC reports that chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, account for 7 out of 10 deaths in the United States. Many of these diseases are preventable, or highly manageable if caught early on, which is where your healthcare team at Rochester Primary Care comes in.

What’s included in preventive care?

The team at Rochester Primary Care offers a number of preventive tools that allow you to take charge of your health, including:

Annual well visits

This yearly physical allows your doctor to track your health, recording valuable baseline information in order to spot any alarming trends. As part of this exam, your doctor evaluates your lipids for high cholesterol, your blood pressure, and the function of your heart and lungs, to name just a few.

Cancer screening

While cancer often strikes without warning, there are early warning signs when it comes to some reproductive cancers in women (including breast cancer), colon cancer, skin cancer, and prostate cancer.


There was a time when almost every child in the United States caught the measles, and some died from the disease. Thanks to a vaccine, measles is no longer a childhood concern. The fact is that vaccinations prevent 16 potentially dangerous illnesses in children, and further vaccinations, such as the flu shot, have protected countless others of all ages.

What can I do at home for preventive care?

There’s much you can do on your own in terms of preventive care and Drs. Surendran can help you get started. For example, through nutritional counseling that provides your body with what it needs for optimal function, you can make a big difference in your health.

Exercise programs also allow you to avoid potentially dangerous conditions like diabetes and heart disease.
